So sorry to read about your husband! With your husband's diagnosis, he needs to get some really solid advice from a urologist who really knows bladder cancer. The decisions that need to be made are too important to not get the very best analysis and treatment options possible. At his age he has a long life ahead of him and he will want to live it to the fullest!!

Vanderbilt has an excellent urology program and several of our members had relatively complicated cases handled there. Cleveland Clinic is another good option.

Wishing you both the very best

We live close to Chattanooga TN and would like to know the best treatment options to preserve the bladder. He has a high grade only slightly invasive. He is an extremely healthy and active 69 year old. I want to know what is the best decision for a long life. Can he do chemo and radiation then monitor with cystoscope to preserve his bladder or should he go straight to bladder removal?
Very frightened wife!
